Thumbs are optional, right?

It's been a painful day. Last night, I tore the nail on my right thumb below the cuticle and it's been hot, slightly swollen, and tender all day. Then, today at lunch time, I was cutting up the chicken for my salad, and...the knife slipped. I sliced into my *left* thumb, cutting from the upper inside corner of the nail across to the middle of the pad. And it's deep. It took three paper towels just to staunch the blood enough to get a bandaid on, but that one got soaked fairly quickly. I went through two more in the 90 minutes before I had to go pick up the kids from school.

An hour after we got home, I caught the bandaid and pulled hard enough on my hand to start the bleeding again. Back to paper towels and pressure to get it to stop before I could get a bandaid on.

Just the slightest of touches makes both of them hurt, so I'm being lazy tonight. Hopefully, they'll be better in the morning.
